A DRIVER had to be helped out of his car by firefighters after it landed on its side following a crash. Emergency services were called to Fiveways Corner junction, Waddon, at about 5am this morning following the collision between two cars. A spokesman for Croydon fire station's red watch said crews helped the driver, thought to be in his forties, out of his flipped Ford Focus. He said: "Because it was on its side it was very difficult for him to get out and also very unstable so we used some shoring-up equipment to make it stable and gained access through the boot to help him out." The man was taken to hospital by ambulance; it is not thought he was badly injured. The driver and passenger in the second car, a Vauxhall Omega, were unhurt. The firefighter added it was not clear what had caused the crash. Road closures were in place for about one hour.
